    When I first bought my Dyson it picked up like a dream. After a the first year it stopped picking up heavier dirt only fine particles. I would have to use the hose attachment to pick up heavier dirt. Very inconvenient...I thought these machines were never supposed to lose suction. This sucks!!!

    I have the same problem. The only reason I spent the money that I did on the dyson was because it claims to NEVER lose suction. I checked for blockages and found nothing. Mine started around the same time, just after the one year mark.

Make sure the filters in the bottom are clean, then remove the canister and you will need to clean it thouroughly, pay close attention to the upper section inside where the "cones" come togetheri have read that they are prone to clog up here and lose suction, google dyson suction loss or how to clean a dyson ect...pay attention to getting the rod that releases the bottom to dump back in the correct place or it will not work right. a few write ups tell about this!

How do i fix a loss of suction in a Dyson DC25?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC25 doesn't seem to be picking up as well as it should be, this could mean you have a blockage in the wand, hose or one of the airways. Your filters may also need a wash.

To check your machine thoroughly for any blockages, please follow each of the steps shown in our online Support guide: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc25/dc25-irsvsye/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual/how-to-wash-filters/check-suction

In normal use we recommend washing both filters at least once every 3 months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for both filters to dry completely before replacing them.


This should resolve things, but if you would like some further advice from our experts after giving these steps a try, you can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Loss of suction in hose


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC24. If there doesn't seem to be as much suction as usual through the hose, there may be a blockage in the wand or hose. You may also need to give the filters a wash.

To locate and remove any blockages in your machine, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc24/dc24-multi-floor/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual/how-to-wash-filters/check-suction

In normal use, the filters need to be washed at least once a month, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for the filters to dry somewhere warm before replacing them.

This should resolve the issue, but if you'd like any further assistance or advice, please call us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Hi loss of suction on Dyson DC07 and I have changed the belt on the brushbar and cleaned all filters/removeable parts but still suction not very good, any other suggestions?


Check for a clog where the power nozzle connects to the hose. Clogs or leaks in the hose will both cause loss of suction/air flow. Another possibility is broken or worn out fan blades.

Dyson hose does not produce alot of suction when extended.


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It sounds as though the wand/hose is blocked. with the machine locked in the upright positino, remove the hose from the machine, switch on and test the suction. If the suction is poor, remove the wand from the hose and test the suction from the top of the hose. If the suction is strong, you will need to check the wand for a blockage. If the suction is still poor, check the hose for a blockage.

You may find it useful to wash the filter as this can sometimes cause a drop in performance if its dirty and it wuold be more noticable from the hose.

I hope that this information is useful to you.

Kind regards

We have the pink dyson and we have washed out filter, but it sounds like it is sucking air and it will not pick up, what would you suggest we try nest


You need to replace the belt. If the belt is stretched, worn or broken it will not pick up well, even if there is good suction. Here is the belt you need and the manual which has instructions:
